McGwire Used Steroids. In Other News, Pope Admits Being Catholic

The longest home run I ever personally witnessed was Cecil Fielder hitting one completely out of Tiger Stadium. Note: Cecil definitely WAS NOT on steroids. With a body like that, if he was on steroids, he should have asked for his money back. The picture at left was Cecil in his "skinny" days.

The second longest I ever personally witnessed was Mark McGwire smashing one against the upper plexiglass of a suite in the Metrodome. In left field. The same left field where the distance down the line is 344 and left-center is 385. He was about 10 feet away from an upper deck shot in left field. It had to be a minimum of 500 feet.

McGwire can cry all he wants, but the bottom line is that he's a cheater and a liar. That will forever taint everything else he did. He'll never make the Hall of Fame, and all of his statistical accomplishments with be served with the dreaded asterisk.

There is only one person to blame for this shame - Mark McGwire.

  1. What is the difference between him using roids and you shooting pheasants perched on a limb or ducks swimming in the water. Should there be an * by the number of pheasants/ducks you kill.


    btw I agree with you.
